Residential Hot Water Pumps
How many times have you waited at the sink, tub, or shower for hot water to arrive? You’re wasting a lot of water and your valuable time. The farther the faucet is from the water heater, the longer you wait. The solution is to integrate an on-demand hot water recirculation pump with your current hot water heater.
The technology has been around for years in hospitals, hotels, large restaurants, and other commercial facilities that have need for immediate hot water and a reduction in their utility bills. Our skilled service techs can discuss options to install a hot water recirculation pump system that fits your home and budget. Tip: Having your hot water pipes insulated can also help reduce heat loss and save energy.
Hot Water Recirculation Pump – Water Heater Mounted
Every time you draw hot water at the sink or shower, the pipes begin to cool until you want hot water again later. The way to avoid wasting water and time is simple. We will install a recirculation pump that takes hot water from your hot water tank, replaces the cooled off water in the hot water pipes and recirculates it back to the hot water tank. The result of this “loop” is hot water at every faucet, tub, and shower in your home. Plus, there will be an 80% reduction in water wasted down the drain and less wait time.
“Smart” Demand Hot Water Recirculation Pump
A more advanced version of the standard hot water recirculation system is an electronic smart demand system that recirculates hot water, saves on energy costs, saves water, and saves your “wait time.” When the water reaches a desired temperature, an electronic control turns off the pump.
A smart hot water recirculation system will “learn” your family’s hot water usage pattern to provide instant hot water when you need it. If you’re away from the house for any extended period, the system stops to save even more energy.
